Up next, couple #2 – Tom and Barbara Good


We’re off to a great start, lots of conversation after only one day! Should it be Audrey & Richard, what about Basil & Sybil, maybe the “non-couple” of Edmund Blackadder and Baldrick. Lots of things to ponder over the next couple of weeks as you think back on a lifetime of watching British comedy where ever you might be. That said, up next…

Couple #2 – The Good Neighbors

TomBarbaraEveryone’s favorite “couple next door” until Tom turns 40, chucks the rat-race, quits his job and begins raising vegetables, chickens and pigs in the backyard so that he and Barbara can become self-sufficient. The series starred Richard Briers as Tom, Felicity Kendal as Barbara and next door neighbors, Jerry and Margo, played by Paul Eddington and Penelope Keith. Personally, I think the series holds up today and is more relevant than ever in the 21st century.
